The club will attend a star-studded ceremony to be hosted by popular actor, author and talent judge, David Walliams on March 18 at ODEON Luxe Leicester Square. The Awards are hosted by film education charity, Into Film, who engage with over half of UK schools.
The Greenhead Celluloid film club is run by Alice Hickman and supported fully by Principal, Simon Lett, who is a film expert and teacher.

The club is inclusive of students from every academic programme, all of whom come together weekly to love film and access the cultural and imaginative potential of the medium. Their students engage in the Into Film programme in a variety of ways.
